Old School Blogging: 12 Questions

Standard

Thanks again to the lovely Elaine, of the Miss Elaine-ous Life for another OSB gem! Hey,girl!!!

Are you young at heart or an old soul?

Definitely an old soul. I love old school music(anything Motown that’s predated from the 80s) and I love old movies and old people. All myfirends call me ‘old lady” and I own it becuase the old things I love represent something genuine that I feel is lost in this generation. For me, my parents grew up in the BEST era and I try to take some of their old school upbringing and values and morals and insert into my daughter’s life.

Tell me about a movie/book that changed your life?

As of right now, I have yet to come across either a book or movie that has changed  my life. Even my favorite books and movies haven’t changed my life. Ask me again in twenty years

Would you like to reconnect with any friends you’ve lost contact with?

Definitely. Lately, my best friend has been really on my mind. We haven’t spoken in a long time and I fear that our reconnection would be awkward. She had a baby a year ago and I have yet to meet her daughter even though the live about 45 minutes away. I know, I know I’m a terrible friend. I do plan on calling her real soon and meeting her gorgeous little girl.

Where was your favorite place to go when you were a little kid?

In the summer, my mom and I would walk across the Brooklyn Bridge. Sometimes it was because we didn’t have money for carfare when my mom had importaant appointments and sometimes it was just because we wanted to. I remember once ,my mom had just bought some awesome clog sandals and they were pinching her feet as we were walking the bridge. We stopped in the middle of it and she asked me if we could switch shoes( we have the same size foot) and we did. I felt so cool in my mom’s shoes.

Do you enjoy being with only one or two friends,or with a large group of friends?

I like having dinner and catching up with three friends at the most. However, when ther is a birthday celebration I love hanging with a large diverse group.BTW, guess who has a birthday coming up? (May 8th)

What’s your “quirkiest” habit?

I have a strange and slightly disgusting habit of ripping off my cuticles. Sometimes, I rip them off without incident,other times things get so…bloody *cringes*

What part of the past year sticks out in your mind?

Hmm…I’m going to have to say getting a job at TJ Maxx last April (I was fired in March). I met some awesome people and I made a couple new best friends.

What do you use more often:your intuition or your logical reasoning?

I’m not really sure. I think with my heart alot which sometimes gets me in trouble.

Where is your favorite place to go out and eat?

APPLEBEES!!!! Their Bourbon Black and Bleu Burger is the greatest thing ever crested by man! Plus, it’s also the place I take Bubba on mommy/daughter dates.

What was the last song that was stuck in your head?

If I mention it, it will get stuckAl in my head again. No,no,no!! OK fine it was Everything Is Awesome from The Lego Movie. Aww geez, its stuck in my head again. Thanks alot, Elaine!

What is your ethnic heritage?

African American, as far as I know. I’m sure that its diluted somewhere becuase of the light skin me,my father,and my grandfather have. No one has ever said anything to me about any other ethnicities so I’m just guessing.

Give me the story of your life in six words.

Always looking for the answer.

Old School Blogging: A Few of my Favorite Things

Standard

I love this memes from  The Miss Elaineous Life. I have another couple

I’ll be doing and U encourage all of you to let me know some of your faves as well

Sit down restaurant- My favorite spot in the WORLD to eat is any Applebees anywhere. It is also Bubba’s favorite restaurant for mother/daughter dates. My favorite item on the menu is the Bourbon Black and Bleu Burger.

Cookie- chocolate creme Oreos. They are just…EVERYTHING! *does Tom Cruise on Oprah’s couch dance*

Bath product scent I usually don’t use any scented products because I have eczema. However, my aunt did give me a French lavender bath gift set for my last birthday. That smelled pretty good but I do prefer fruity scents.

TV Shows I have quite a few favorite shows. Among them are Nurse Jackie, Veep, Preachers of L.A. and more recently How to Get Away with Murder and Gotham

Flowers/plants- Hmm… I really don’t like flowers but since I have to choose, the one that stand out is sunflowers! That pop of yellow gives me life every time I see it.

Bad-for-me snack I LOVE CHEESECAKE!!! My local supermarket sells this variety cheesecake wheel and I feel the fat creeping up my thighs every time I take a bite but I don’t care

magazines- Parents magazine and Ink’d magazine. The tats in Ink’d are amazing.

Hobby- Aside from blogging, I like scrapbooking. Its been awhile since I’ve done it but I love bringing pictures and brightly colored paper together.

Holiday- I think I have to say Valentine’s Day. I love all the sappy romance. I haven’t had a valentine aside from Bubba since I was 14,but here’s hoping, right?

Girls Night Out- what’s that?

Date night- once again, what’s that? If I get a chance to have one, dinner wine and some good ole fashioned hanky panky *winks*
